#### Electromagnetic Analysis Using Transmission Line Variables

World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 179.00This book employs a relatively new method for solving electromagnetic problems, one which makes use of a transmission line matrix (TLM). The propagation space is imagined to be filled with this matrix. The propagating fields and physical properties are then mapped onto the matrix. Mathematically, the procedures are identical with the traditional numerical... more...

#### Quantum Phase Transitions in Cold Atoms and Low Temperature Solids

Springer 2011; US$ 179.00The primary focus of this thesis is to theoretically describe nanokelvin experiments in cold atomic gases, which offer the potential to revolutionize our understanding of strongly correlated many-body systems. The thesis attacks major challenges of the field: it proposes and analyzes experimental protocols to create new and interesting states of matter... more...

#### Selected Semiconductor Research

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 193.00This unique volume assembles the author's scientific and engineering achievements of the past three decades in the areas of: semiconductor physics and materials, including topics in deep level defects and band structures, CMOS devices, including the topics in device technology, CMOS device reliability, and nano CMOS device quantum modeling, and... more...

#### Basic Structures of Reality

Oxford University Press, USA 2011; US$ 48.99In Basic Structures of Reality, Colin McGinn deals with questions of metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of mind from the vantage point of physics. Combining general philosophy with physics, he covers such topics as the definition of matter, the nature of space, motion, gravity, electromagnetic fields, the character of physical knowledge, and... more...

#### Are We There Yet? The Search for a Theory of Everything

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 21.00We live in exciting times. The frontiers of physics have been pushed to unprecedented horizons. The Holy Grail of fundamental physics research today is to find and describe a theory that explains, at least in principle, all physical phenomena, which in turns explains chemistry, biology and other material sciences. This, however, is not without controversy.... more...

#### Field, Force, Energy and Momentum in Classical Electrodynamics

Bentham Science Publishers 2011; US$ 89.00For the past 100 years physicists have debated the nature of the momentum of light inside material media. Hermann Minkowski, for example, asserts that within a transparent dielectric the momentum of a photon is the photon’s vacuum momentum multiplied by the refractive index of the dielectric. An opposing theory postulated by Max Abraham, contends... more...

#### Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2008; US$ 55.00Integral Equation Methods for Electromagnetic and Elastic Waves is an outgrowth of several years of work. There have been no recent books on integral equation methods. There are books written on integral equations, but either they have been around for a while, or they were written by mathematicians. Much of the knowledge in integral equation methods... more...

#### Electromagnetic Scattering using the Iterative Multi-Region Technique

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00In this work, an iterative approach using the finite difference frequency domain method is presented to solve the problem of scattering from large-scale electromagnetic structures. The idea of the proposed iterative approach is to divide one computational domain into smaller subregions and solve each subregion separately. Then the subregion solutions... more...

#### Perfectly Matched Layer (PML) for Computational Electromagnetics

Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2007; US$ 40.00This lecture presents the perfectly matched layer (PML) absorbing boundary condition (ABC) used to simulate free space when solving the Maxwell equations with such finite methods as the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method or the finite element method. The frequency domain and the time domain equations are derived for the different forms of... more...

#### Strongly Correlated Systems

Springer 2011; US$ 209.00This volume presents, for the very first time, an exhaustive collection of those modern theoretical methods specifically tailored for the analysis of Strongly Correlated Systems. Many novel materials, with functional properties emerging from macroscopic quantum behaviors at the frontier of modern research in physics, chemistry and materials science,... more...
